Take the Risk for a Mental Health Break

“People can’t multitask very well, and when people say they can, they’re deluding themselves.” ~ Earl Miller, Neuroscientist
As a mom, it’s hard to admit the truth. 
A friend on Mom’s Together said it like this: 
I think that if all moms were to concentrate on only one thing at a time, the world would fall apart. Either that, or we’d all be happier. But what a risk to take!
Well, dear readers, I’m going to take that risk this summer. I’m taking a mental health break to focus on the one thing I’ve longed to do for most of my life – something that really makes me happy: I’m going to write a book. You see, in 6 weeks, I’m headed across the country to She Speaks, where I have the chance to grow in my speaking and meet with editors to share my book idea. It’s going to take a LOT of concentration for a mom in the SUMMER to do one thing, a major thing, really well. It’s a risk to take….
I’m ready to take the risk.
To do that, it means making choices. One choice I’ve made is to drop back to 1 post a week – the Monday posts. So this will be my last Thursday post until after the conference in July. You can still find me at my Facebook page, where the quotes, insights and tools to be unstuck and live your strengths will continue all summer. And I’ll also continue to coach clients during this time.
I’m taking the plunge, friends. I’m going to put down a few of my spinning plates so I can do my best at one that means so much to me. Are you willing to take that risk for something important to you too?
